Healthy Snack Ideas for Every Occasion

Healthy Snack Ideas for Every Occasion

If you’re trying to eat healthier, snacks are a very important part.

They can help to maintain your blood sugars, keeping energy levels up, and helping to prevent mood swings.

Here are a few healthy snack ideas for all occasions:

#1 When you get hungry
Even when you’re trying to lose weight, it’s not necessary to suffer hours of feeling hungry. Try a filling, healthy snack such as:

Small bowl of oats topped with cinnamon and raisins
Small bowl of wholegrain cereal with semi-skimmed milk
One half-wholegrain sandwich filled with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, and lean meat
Small bowl of natural yoghurt topped with raspberries and a sprinkling of muesli

#2 When your energy is flagging
These snacks will help perk you up, and carry you through till dinner:

Small bowl of fresh fruit with a dollop of natural yoghurt
Raw vegetables with reduced fat hummus dip
Small handful of mixed raw nuts
Small handful of mixed seeds
Frozen berries with natural yoghurt and 1 teaspoon of honey
Rice cakes with 1-2 tablespoons of low fat cottage cheese

#3 When you feel like a treat
Eating something you really enjoy now and again can actually help you stick with a healthy eating plan for life. But, rather than choosing the biggest bar of chocolate you can find, look for something satisfying, but much more nourishing:

A few squares of good quality dark chocolate
Plain popcorn, seasoned with herbs, rather than salt or toffee flavouring
Small handful of dried fruit such as papaya, banana, peach, apricot, or pineapple
1/2 cup 100% whole orange juice, frozen and eaten as sorbet

Red skin from EVERY skin product?

Question by John Pomper: Red skin from EVERY skin product?
Hey, i’m a 19 year old oily/dry skinned guy.

Ok, so whenever i wash my face or put hydration creams my face gets RED!
I bought various ultra-sensitive oily/acne prone skin fashwashes and hydration creams from brands like Avène, really good ones. I used to wash it day and night and put the hydration creams after washing… But it gets red with ANYTHING!
I started taking “care” of my skin when i was 18, about 16 monthes ago and since then my acne has improved ALOT, but i dunno it leaves my skin red around my cheeks, and nose, but nowhere else (when i apply products)…. I’m thinking about just leaving my skin alone, not put anything on it, but isn’t everyone supposed to wash their face?

By the way, i was using Epiduo for like 2 monthes which left my skin very red and irritated, so i stopped using it for about a month and a half now, could this be due to that or has it been too long since i used epiduo for it still to make me red?

Best answer:

Answer by KingSilent17
I have the same thing, though I’m pretty sure that its likely the beginnings of rosacea . Left untreated it can turn into the ugly, fullblown kind, which is more common for men because they are more stubborn/proud to get treatment than women.

There are special products you can use. I use Eucerin products(available at drugstores like Walgreens), which is like a 4-step program where you use their sooting face wash morning and night. You apply in the morning a moisturizer that’s greenish, and apply over it what is essentially green coverup. At night you use the face wash again, and apply the nighttime cream. It sounds like something a female would do, but guys need to take care of their skin all the same, and its the only way to keep it from getting worse.

The reason you should be careful here is that washing your face too much with the wrong kind of face wash can only make things worse. I say try the rosacea/redness angle at first and see how it works out.
